PLYMOUTH Raiders will be looking to bounce back after two away defeats on Friday night when they hit the road again with a trip to second-placed Sheffield Sharks.

It will be the Raiders’ fourth consecutive away match.

They have lost to Cheshire Phoenix and Leicester Riders since stunning Newcastle Eagles on their new home coach on January 11.

Raiders’ last two defeats have seen them drop down to ninth in the table and they will need to get back to winning ways if they want to make the end of season BBL play-offs.

Raiders’ Rashad Hassan remains at the helm of the BBL average points table and was sorely missed when he fouled out late on against Leicester.  Raiders will be hoping he can hit top form on Friday and that Josh Wilcher continues his impressive recent displays.
